Before the start of the funding phase
For the protection of the supporters it is legally prescribed to us (Money Laundering Act §11) to check the identity and account data of the starters. With the verification we can make sure that the community always knows who starts the projects on Startnext. The data will only be used for payment processing of the crowdfunding funds and will be stored according to the legal deadlines.
We will guide you step by step through the process in the interface on your project page under the item "verification":
- Step 1: Set legal entity: Choose whether you want to legitimize yourself as a private person or as a company. We can currently legitimize the following organizations: Sole proprietorship, partnerships under civil law, association, UG / GmbH, foundation, OHG, KG, GmbH & Co. KG, cooperative, AG, registered merchant, corporations under public law.
- Step 2: Maintain payout details: Enter the data of the money recipient and enter the account to which the funds are to be disbursed after successful financing. In the funding phase, the funds are administered in trust by our payment service provider and partner secupay AG. You therefore confirm the trust agreement as a starter.
- Step 3: Verify Pay Out Account: So that we can confirm your account, we make a cent transfer, which will be transferred to your account by our payment service provider secupay within 3 working days. You will find the verification code (5-digit code) in the purpose of the transfer. Enter this code again in the interface under "verification > Payout data" and your account will be verified.
